Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Judge Roy Moore appears at a mid-Alabama Republican Club's Veterans Day event on November 11. This week, Moore's campaign was brought under scrutiny, after the candidate was accused of sexual misconduct with underage girls when he was in his 30's.

Last week, multiple women stepped forward to accuse Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Alabama, of sexual misconduct with minors in the 1970s. The reaction from the GOP has been mixed.

Some establishment leaders have said Moore should step aside if the allegations are true, but the candidate himself has stuck to his story. He says the allegations are “fake news” and has threatened to sue the Washington Post, which broke the story.

And many of Moore’s supporters are standing by him. We get the view from Alabama.
